Mellow out on Wednesday, April 17, starting @ 3 am, as From the Soundboard will air its annual 420 program, as the focus will be on the groundbreaking Progressive Rock band from Canterbury, Kent, England. They are The Soft Machine.
The Soft Machine were never a commercial enterprise and indeed remain unknown even to many listeners who came of age during the late ’60s and early ’70s, when the group was at its peak. In their own way, however, they were one of the more influential bands of their era, and certainly one of the most influential underground outfits. One of the original British psychedelic groups, they were instrumental in the birth of both progressive rock and jazz-rock. [Dave Lynch – All Music Guide]
